The School is a caring, friendly school built on strong relationships and a clear sense of purpose that drives them to do the best they can for every individual. They believe their students are successful, happy, well rounded individuals who thrive on the challenge and support they provide.
The school is focused on every student achieving the best they can and realising their full potential. They aim to provide a curriculum that inspires and motivates, taking time to reflect on how they teach and help students learn most effectively. The School think it is important to establish high expectations and want the students to develop a passion for learning fuelled by an ambition to be as successful as they can be. They try to ensure their students are both challenged and supported in equal measure whilst recognising they have a responsibility to participate fully in order to maximise their learning. They must, therefore, be prepared to work hard, set demanding personal targets and have the self-belief to meet such expectations.
There is a really strong sense of community within the school. Staff, students and parents support a wide range of activities and events beyond the curriculum, reflecting the varied opportunities they aim to provide for all students. Key amongst these are many different arts and sports activities, a significant number of educational trips both within the UK and abroad as well as their very well established Duke of Edinburgh Scheme. The School encourages all students to become active participants in the vibrant wider life of the school believing that such experiences help them develop important life skills and enable them to grow as confident young adults and responsible citizens. They aspire to be a school that really makes a difference to the lives of our students, helping to shape them as learners and as people, with the skills and qualities that can transfer into any walk of life or area of employment.
All strong communities rely upon good citizenship. They expect their students to demonstrate personal responsibility in the way they conduct themselves, showing respect, tolerance and commitment to both staff and their fellow students. They encourage students to act as leaders, considering how their behaviour and their contributions to the community can inspire and motivate others. They believe everyone has the potential to show leadership and aim to provide as many opportunities as they can for students to show such skills and capabilities.Term Time Teachers are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, therefore all applicants will be subject to a full face-to-face registration and an Enhanced DBS (Formerly known as CRB).
